Property condition

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble from the doorman to housekeeping. My only criticism was that we were given a twin room suitable for a wheelchair user. The toilet was a bit high, the shower took some getting used to. It was a wet room so everything stayed wet. The only place to put things was the windowsill and you had to walk over the water from the shower so not really suitable.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I liked the subtle revamp/modernisation of this spectacular, traditional, very old building. The last time I stayed here it was known as the Caledonian Hotel, although there were still the occasional cold, draughty spots to remind me of that. The heating bills must be huge! The staff at check-in, in the function room and the Caley Bar were very welcoming, and all good at their jobs. The location is superb too.

A stunning building - beautifully kept. Excellent service - particularly Kris at Breakfast in the Grazing Shed. Just one small blip when our room wasn’t ready at check in time. Otherwise a truly lovely stay with lots of little touches to enjoy - the sweet station being one!

Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2019
